'To make sense of the degeneration of the Sandinista project in present day Nicaragua under Daniel Ortega, or the depths of the Venezuelan economic catastrophe under Nicols Maduro in Venezuela, there are few better primers than 'The Ebb of the Pink Tide'. This book provides some crucial foundations for the ongoing collective effort to contribute to Latin America's next cycle of emancipatory endeavours, from below and to the Left' -- Jeffery R. Webber, author of 'The Last Day of Oppression, and the First Day of the Same: The Politics and Economics of the New Latin American Left'
